Crescent ♓ Pisces
Previous main lunar phase is the Last Quarter before 1 day on 16 May 2028 at 10:43.
Moon rises after midnight to early morning and sets in the afternoon. It is visible in the early morning low to the east.
Moon is passing about ∠9° of ♓ Pisces tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 7% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1768" and ∠1897".
Next Full Moon is the Strawberry Moon of June 2028 after 20 days on 7 June 2028 at 06:09.
There is medium ocean tide on this date. Sun and Moon gravitational forces are not aligned, but meet at very acute angle, so their combined tidal force is moderate.
The Moon is 23 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the second to the final part of current synodic month. This is lunation 350 of Meeus index or 1303 from Brown series.
The length of the lunation is 29 days, 12 hours and 29 minutes. It is 2 hours and 18 minutes longer than the next lunation's length. The lengths of the following synodic months are going to decreasing with the true anomaly getting closer to the value it has at the point of New Moon at perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).
The length of the current synodic month is 15 minutes shorter than the mean synodic month length. It is 5 hours and 54 minutes longer compared to 21st century's shortest synodic month length.
At the beginning of the lunation cycle the true anomaly is ∠243.3°. At the beginning of next synodic month the true anomaly is going to be ∠278.2°.
Moon is at apogee at 09:55. It is 11 days after previous perigee on 5 May 2028 at 10:31 in ♍ Virgo. Lunar orbit is going to narrow while the Moon is moving towards the Earth over the next 13 days, until point of next perigee on 31 May 2028 at 06:18 in ♍ Virgo.
This apogee Moon is 404 276 km (251 205 mi) away from Earth. It is 1 132 km further than the mean apogee distance, but it is still 2 433 km closer than the farthest apogee of 21st century.
3 days after ascending node on 13 May 2028 at 20:46 in ♑ Capricorn. The Moon is located north of the ecliptic over the following 10 days, until the lunar orbit crosses from North to South in descending node on 28 May 2028 at 00:41 in ♌ Leo.
3 days since the beginning of current draconic month in ♑ Capricorn, the Moon is navigating from the beginning to the first part of the cycle.
6 days since the previous standstill on 11 May 2028 at 03:45 in ♐ Sagittarius when the Moon has reached South declination of ∠-25.961°, the lunar orbit is extending northward over the next 8 days to face maximum declination of ∠25.917° at the point of next northern standstill on 25 May 2028 at 14:09 in ♊ Gemini.
In 6 days on 24 May 2028 at 08:16 in ♊ Gemini the Moon is going to be in a New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and thus forming the next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy alignment.
